The main reason for the gas is that you are still consuming too many starches. Your doctor is trying to get the sugars down that you have put into your body. Why not start at your mouth and not put them in there?
Starting right now do this:
eat anything white except cauliflower or cottage cheese.
eat anything made with corn, wheat, rice, barley or potatoes.
drink fruit juices or regular soda.DO
eat lean meats like ham, chicken breast, pork loin, fish, lean beef.DO
eat eggs with a slice of cheese for breakfast.DO
make "sandwiches" with romaine or leaf lettuce instead of bread.DO
put some peanut butter on a 1/2 banana for a delicious snack.DO
eat two vegetables at lunch and dinner.DO
eat high nutrition fruits such as citrus, bananas, strawberries instead of "empty" ones like pears.DO
start reading nutrition labels to learn the carbohydrate content of foods so you can make informed decisions about
your food plan.DO
take control of your health for your own benefit and start a regular food diary with blood sugar readings each morning upon waking and two hours after a meal. This will give you an accurate idea of how the foods you eat affect your blood sugar levels. This will also help you choose which foods to eat that will give you the nutrition you need without the excess sugar (gas!) in your system. It may also make it so that you do not need to take Actos.
By following this food plan I was able to get off insulin. It may work for you also.
